Daniela De Venuto

Professor

Biography

 Prof. Daniela De Venuto is working at the Politecnico di Bari, Italy, teaching Design of Integrated Electronic Systems. She received her PhD in Electronic Engineering from the Politecnico di Bari, Italy in 1993. Prior to that, she received her master and bachelor degrees in Electronic Engineering in 1989 and she held the postdoctoral position at the same University in 1994. Since 1995 she holds the position of associated researcher at the National Institute of Nuclear Physics working in the frame of projects on silicon drift detector (DSI), pixel detectors telescope (ALICE Project at CERN Geneva Switzerland, still running), and SIRTOD. In 2000 she spent a sabbatical year at the Ecole Polytecnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL, Switzerland), at the Laboratoire d’Electronique Générale (LEG). During this time Prof. De Venuto was working within the European “Eureka” Project on design Hall sensor front-end and read-out ASIC in FD SOI technology (UCL, Belgium). Between July 2002 and July 2005, she has been Visiting Scholar at the University of Washington at Seattle (USA). Between August 2002 and 2006, she held the position of Visiting Lecturer at the University of Lancaster, UK, Centre for Microsystems Engineering. As member of the Lancaster University, she worked in the European Projects “Testability of Analogue Macro-cells Embedded in System-On-Chip (TAMES-2)” and “Excellence Network on Design and Test of Electronic Microsystems including sensor and MEMS (PATENT)”. Since 2003 until 2007 she has been scientific responsible of national projects on integrated DNA detectors, in collaboration with other national Universities (Rome “La Sapienza”, Bologna, Perugia). Since 2007 she started a collaboration with Integrated System Centre of the EPFL, Switzerland, working in designing integrated potentiostat based bio-chip for drug detection in human body. During 2008-2009, she has been on sabbatical leave at NXP Semiconductors (IMEC Leuven, Belgium and HighTechCampus in Eindhoven, The Netherlands) designing a novel low power 12 bit SAR ADC for RFID perishable product monitoring based upon an invitation NXP’s head of the R&D department. Since 2010 until 2012 she has been visiting the IC Lab of NXP HTC Eindhoven working on the design of smart temperature sensor for low power RFID application. Currently she is at the University of California at Berkeley for a sabbatical period working inside the research group of Prof. Jan Rabaey. Her research focuses on design of sensors and analog and mixed signal sensor read-out circuits for bio-medical applications.
